CORE GROUP NEWS
Each of these groups is actively organizing toward the goal of creating a cohousing community, or has one already.
BASSETT CREEK COHOUSING - next meeting
The next Bassett Creek Cohousing core group meeting will be Sun., Feb. 5, 2017 at 6 pm at First Unitarian Society, 900 Mount Curve, Minneapolis.
The Getting-It-Built Workshop (mentioned elsewhere in this TCCN News) in St Paul in March will focus on the site that the Bassett Creek Cohousing core group is looking at. For details, see the Bassett Creek Cohousing web site: http://mn.cohousing.org/bcrk/ or contact Fred or Becca for details: 612-588-9532 firstname.lastname@example.org
An Eco-Village-style cohousing campus for the fringe of the metro area will incorporate year-round food production and PassiveHouse housing units of varying sizes and types. This will be a multi-generational community that fosters connections and reciprocity among themselves and with people in surrounding towns. The Twin Cities Ecovillage Facebook public group is a way to be in touch with them.
GETTING-IT-BUILT WORKSHOP GROUP
This group is coordinating the McCamant & Durrett Getting-It-Built Workshop and presentation; it has several members from the Bassett Creek Cohousing group and some people who are as yet unaffiliated with one of the other core groups. For info, contact: John Kalmon email@example.com or 715-381-5781.
MONTEREY COHOUSING - event postponed
The previously announced event that was set for Feb. 11 has been postponed. You can keep in touch with Monterey via their Facebook page.
SUITE - now two sub-groups
Recently, SUITE Cohousing (Sustainable Urban Intergenerational Transit-oriented and Equitable) decided to change direction and amicably split into two sub-groups. One is holding a vision for and searching for a South Minneapolis cohousing site. The other is committing to creating cohousing in an existing building—the Metro Lofts (a 67-unit condo building) on University Ave near Hwy 280—by collectively purchasing a common-use unit there.
